"Using iPad for reading is something we all enjoy doing; but what about when reading articles in a foreign language ? It is highly probably that you will come across vocabulary you don't know.

Getting the job done with easy to use interfaces on the iPad, the Minu Timer and Stopwatch app | iGo With My iPad

Getting the job done with easy to use interfaces on the iPad, the Minu Timer and Stopwatch app | iGo With My iPad | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"For the iPad there is a great timer/stopwatch app called Minu Timer. This universal free app needs no instructions (although it does include a start up ‘how to use’ page appearing on your first launch). The interface is simple and the user experience proves that a well written app will let users jump right in and get started. A lack of buttons and excessive tuning options keeps things uncluttered and removes the need to tap through to layers of screens."

App Synergy: How To Embrace The Night -- AppAdvice | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Welcome to part three (actually part 2 I believe -JE)  of our series leading up to The Dark Knight Rises. http://www.thedarkknightrises.com/   The inspiration for this week’s article lies in the life of Batman’s alter ego, Bruce Wayne. When Bruce saw his parents gunned down before his eyes, he faced the darkest night of his life. Instead of letting that trauma defeat him, Bruce confronted the darkness, both emotionally and literally. He embraced the night and became a creature of it. Although we are not Batman, we can also thrive in the darkness. When the sun goes down and the lights go out, let your iDevice help you enjoy the night. Here’s how:"
